LA Tech Edges WKU

RUSTON, La. (AP) - Jacobi Boykins returned from a one-game suspension to score 25 points, 19 in the first half, and Louisiana Tech broke a two-game skid with a 76-67 win over Western Kentucky on Thursday night.
    
Boykins, who was ejected after an on-court scuffle last week and then suspended for a game, was 10-for-15 shooting with five 3-pointers - his most since mid-December - and the Bulldogs were 11 of 20 from 3-point range. Omar Sherman added 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting and Erik McCree 14 points with a quartet of 3-pointers.
    
Louisiana Tech (15-8, 7-3 Conference USA) bounced back after two straight losses - the fight-marred game with UAB and then to Middle Tennessee. Louisiana Tech is a half-game back of UAB and three behind Middle Tennessee in the C-USA race.
    
Justin Johnson led Western Kentucky (11-12, 5-5) with 23 points and 10 rebounds while Junior Lomomba added 13. The double-double was Johnson's third straight, eighth this season and 18th career.
